think it has an initive appeal. tavi the article about bill and hillary clinton, as you know, we have been talking about poverty and we have discussed this together. i have been troubled by the fact that in the first two debates, i was told they did a much better job than jim lehrer did. respectfully. but no question about poverty. the numbers are very clear. it is threatening our very democracy. you know the story line as well as i do, but no moderator has asked the question directly about poverty and the poor. tomorrow night, might we get a question about that specifically from someone that is living in impoverished conditions? >> is a way tok there downplay poverty, but the one thing i will say is that he did a great job. that debate was 70 minutes on foreign policy. if you match that with most americans, if that is not whose last three of their concerns, we have not talked about poverty or immigration. we have not talked about gay marriage, sensitive social issues. i have no idea what is going on in the heads of voters. moderating this third debate, she gets to call the questions

about and has written about the problems of the clinton family in this book bill and hillary the ladies and gentlemen, please welcome william chafe. [applause] >> i'm thrilled to see this audience and grateful. i'm certainly impressed. i thought i would begin by telling you a little bit about my career and how i can to write this book as it has been indicated before i didn't start as a biographer i started as a social historian and i wrote about the women's movement. only towards the last ten years i found these questions of what makes an individual try to change history. i would argue this is actually a strong coherence in all of this because when we are writing about socialism, writing about the setting students in the movement with what happened how do they get the mind? wendi did that within some of the administration's in the city's and in the 90 different states because the young individuals decided to make history. that got me interested in the world making history, and it helps to highlight what makes someone come to the point acting decisively in the historical moment and chang

trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the speech how he wa

of bush '41 and bill clinton. but eventually he did fade in the polls. what is the virtue of having ross perot appealing to iowa voters? is this the deficit hawk and tea party support. >> i think there's a very big sliver of voters out there that are anxious about the direction of the country as it relates to spending and deficits and bringing reform and bringing a new sensibility to washington. we haven't seen that for the last four years. ross perot i think speaks to a lot of those voters. i don't want to make too much of endorsements but it does say something about this -- the voters out there who care about those issues that governor romney does have that type of support. the independent swing voters that many years ago looked at somebody like perot who could bring a change to washington, i think they see the same in governor romney right now. somebody who can really tackle deficits bring down spending and reform washington with a new sense of putting the country back on track. >> now the joint committee on tagsation, highly regarded the congressional bipartisan committee, these are
